Rabindranath Tagore was a universal personality. His genius was versatile. He was influenced by the Christian conception of the fatherhood of God and by Shakespeare, Goethe, Wordsworth etc. But the roots of his intellectual creativism and emotional make-up lie in the Upanishads, in the poetry of kalidas, in the lyrics of Vaisnavas, in the mystic poems of Kabir and the religious atmosphere of the Brahmo Samaj...

Whole Language has become a visible and strong movement in language instruction.

Some are at a beginning stage of knowledge regarding Whole Language as philosophy and methodology. This has serious implications for the children entrusted to them...

[texts]ERIC ED378181: Pragmatism, Postmodernism and Education. - ERIC
Four ideas characterize postmodernity: skepticism toward grand narratives, critique of the assumption of a unified human subject, problematization of the notion of representation, and a celebration of otherness and difference. Drawbacks to applying postmodern theories to education include: postmodernism is ill-equipped to deal with morally and politically charged, normative educational issues; its focus on the local and the particular is often too narrow; too strong an emphasis on antirepresenta...

[texts]ERIC ED306574: English Studies and the Metaphors We Live By. - ERIC
Metaphors affect the way teachers and students see, think, and act, and can be useful in building models to empower students. Three models and their metaphorical foundations are currently at work in pedagogical stances attempting to empower students: (1) the conflict metaphor; (2) the midwife metaphor; and (3) the web metaphor. A metaphor of conflict is built through a rhetoric of aggression that is exclusionary and defeating; in spite of the beneficial side to this model of struggle, the negati...

[texts]ERIC ED329491: Aesthetics in Art Education: A Look Toward Implementation. ERIC Digest. - ERIC
Aesthetics, or the philosophy of art, is perhaps the most troublesome discipline advocated in a discipline-based approach to art education. It is troublesome for many reasons, including its largely verbal nature and the lack of experience of most art teachers with its content and modes of inquiry. Nevertheless, aesthetics can serve as a basis for all other content in an art curriculum because of its nature and its foundation of general questions about all works of art...

Twenty-five years ago a small volume of essays entitled "Crisis in the Humanities" was published containing an ominous message: namely, that the humanistic disciplines had arrived at a crossroad--a turning point at which a decisive change for better or worse was imminent. Humanistic scholarship appears to have declined since that crossroad was reached, and the reason may be that as pursued at present in many areas, it produces knowledge that is of little intrinsic interest and relevance...

In addition, it is argued, current scholarly tradition avoids critical self-evaluation...

[texts]ERIC ED328869: What Should Schools Teach? Issues of Process and Content. - ERIC
When discussing what schools should teach, questions of both content and process must be addressed. Although many observers believe that a fixed content should be learned, it is impossible to separate content and process. In the process of education, experiences build on each other. This fact should cause educators to question the continuities between the experience and content of preschools and primary schools, middle schools and high schools, which currently tend to be either nonexistent or un...

To examine this phenomenon, the play activities of 4- and 5-year-old girls and boys in an ethnically mixed preschool were analyzed from videotapes, and interviews with the children on their understanding of gender identity and their social r...

Richard Mitchell, the "Underground Grammarian," has been dismissed by many in the academic community as a pop-culture grammar-basher. This is unfortunate, since Mitchell has linked literacy to the capacity for moral behavior. This connection between moral capacity and literacy is often avoided by the way in which literacy is defined. In western society, literacy was a prerequisite to well-being; illiteracy was symptomatic of malaise and decline...
